The Story Continues . . .
Today's photos are woefully fuzzy. Sorry about that. They are digital pictures of old photographs. The one on the left was taken in Port Chester, NY around 1980, just after I had "acquired" not only Radar (whose back we see) but also had gotten Coffee, who was about 14 years old when this picture was taken. She had been the Johnson family dog starting around 1966, just before I left for college. When she was about 7, our Dad wanted a new pup (a phase-in as an older dog "phased out") --- and I procured Radar. By the time Mom and Dad moved to an apartment in Bay Shore, I had acquired Beau (picture at right, taken in Boston around 1985 or '86) --- a 120 pound Golden Retriever (sadly, this is the only photo I have been able to dig up of Beau and it's not his most flattering). Coffee died in 1983 (age 17) and Beau passed away in the spring of 1987 (age 12). Radar made the return to NYC with me in the summer of 1987 and lived to the age of 17, passing away in 1990. That said, here's today's installment of Fluffy and Flossy.
